White Belt Yellow Tag Remains found
White Belt Yellow Tag have announced details of the release of a new EP, ‘Remains’, out on Monday October 19th 2009 through Distiller Records. Self-produced and mixed by Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur).
Brooding and with a Krautrock klang, ‘Remains’, will be available on limited 7” (with CD of tracks enclosed) and download. It features the B-sides ‘Control, Designs & Innovations’, a cover of the Wedding Present’s ‘Dalliance’ plus the download will also feature two remixes from Losers (Eddy Temple-Morris and Tom Bellamy of The Cooper Temple Clause).
Essentially the creation of Justin Lockey (ex Yourcodenameis:Milo) and Craig Pilbin, White Belt Yellow Tag formed just over a year ago having met in Newcastle. Lockey had built up a reputation as one of the UK’s leading new band producers having worked with White Lies, Late Of The Pier and Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and the pair met when Pilbin was looking for someone to work with on a number songs he had written.
‘Remains’ is taken from the band’s recently recorded debut album ‘Methods’, an amazingly far-reaching and beguiling record. The pair’s song-writing nouse and Lockey’s “sonic alchemy” have combined to create something unique where epic wide-screen atmospherics work in harmony with moments of white-noise and fragile beauty.
Methods is due to be released in early 2010, but in the mean time the band will release and tour the incredible ‘Remains EP’ on the following dates:
27th Belfast Speakeasy
6th Cardiff Barfly
7th London Roundhouse Studio
8th Manchester Ruby Lounge
9th Leeds Cockpit
11th York Fibbers
12th Glasgow King Tuts
13th Derby Royal
